No Image displays contemporary art productions from different cultural backgrounds, focusing on the implementation of religious bans on images and image-making. Central topics include the blurry boundary between symbols, icons and images; the handling of image worship or its negation, the destruction of the Bamiyan statues, as well as ornamentation, script, and calligraphy. The discussions of such topics will foster dialogue about distinctions, parallels, intersections, and similarities between distinct religious and cultural communities. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue.
